Jesus said to him, Anyone who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is clean all over. And you [My disciples] are clean, but not all of you.” John 13:10 AMP
One of the measure reason why many find it difficult to be intimate with God Almighty is the sin in our lives which easily causes us to stumble. Anything that is an addiction in our lives besides God Almighty is most of the time what fight our intimacy with God.
But when we choose to be intimate with Him we are no more concious of our sins because Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour takes His place in our life in cleansing us and makes us conscious of Him, instead of our faults and weaknesses.
David cried for this towards God and prayed saying:
Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean [ceremonially]; wash me, and I shall [in reality] be whiter than snow.” Psalms 51:7 AMP
He acknowledged his inability to be pure without God helping him. Intimacy with the Father delivers us from the power of self and cause us to enjoy our spiritual life in Christ Jesus.
Let’s pray together:
Father, I thank You for Your word. Help me by Your Spirit to enjoy being intimate with you instead of being conscious of my weaknesses and faults in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
